Hey everyone,
I recently started at HubSpot as an account executive covering SMB. I’m finishing up training and a Salesforce recruiter reached about a job opening doing pretty much the same thing. Salesforce was near the top of my list of prospective companies. Curious if anyone has experience working there and would recommend it over HubSpot?

Honestly you will have the same opportunity in a year - I would stick it out, Hubspot is a strong product so you shouldn’t have trouble selling. Will only make you a better rep when/if you do jump to SFDC later.

I disagree. You won't have the same opportunity in a year - you'll have a better opportunity.

Hubspot is a great place to work (or so I've heard), and every year of experience means you're having a better conversation when you're making your next move.

Yeah ^ hub spot is a great name. plus you may burn bridges if you jump. But doesn’t hurt to speak with salesforce at the same time and see

I think HubSpot will only continue to grow as a company whereas it feels like Salesforce is pretty much capped in terms of innovation

Listen, I think Salesforce can be a fit for anyone who wants to sling SaaS.

It's hard work and not everyone makes it, but if you can you won't get a better big company experience in any industry.

See if Salesforce willing to pay a premium and if so go for it! Market is hot and if they money is there and it fits what you want could be intriguing

Speak with them. Have the conversation. You're not committed to anything before you sign, and you can always back out.

Having conversations means you get a better understanding of the market and your worth, and you become better at having interviews.

Be transparent with the fact that you've just joined Hubspot and you're not actively looking to jump, but you're open for the conversation, and they can make the decision to proceed or not.

Do you mind sharing your OTE? I'm currently a Salesforce AE in the SMB segment. Super curious.
